Can it go bad?
The answer is yes; it does, in fact, have an expiration date. You have to use it before it goes bad, as, with time, the effect of CBD also decreases, and soon it won’t give you the same therapeutic effect that it once did. However, you don’t really need to worry about any adverse reactions as it won’t have any. Moreover, CBD oil is supposed to last for 14 to 24 months, but it can vary depending on various factors like:
● The ingredients used
● It’s quality
● Storage bottle
● Place of storage
Signs of expired CBD oil
Now that you know that CBD oil does in fact go bad, you must be wondering what the signs are.
Well, most CBD oil bottles will have an expiration date so that you know when to stop using them. However, there are still some more ways to know if your CBD oil has expired. Such as smelling funky, the texture changes into something thick, and it will taste rancid, although it is supposed to taste nutty. These can be detected in oil that is past its prime age.
In conclusion, there isn’t much you can do to make CBD oil last longer than the expiration date, but you should still store it in a dry and dark place. Usually, if you’re an avid user, the oil will not expire before you have the chance to finish the bottle! So, you need not worry about its expiry date.
